Sensors are a fundamental component of many electronic systems. This subject teaches students how to integrate sensors within their designs. Both hardware and software aspects are addressed. On the software side, sensing is considered as an estimation problem, and sensor fusion algorithms are applied to incorporate sensor data into a process or system model. On the hardware side, students learn how to design and use interface circuits for resistive, capacitive, inductive, piezoelectric, and voltage generating sensors. The subject also surveys a range of common sensor types, and investigates the operational principles and use cases of each type.
